Our work at Bideford Bay and Hartland
With around 40 miles of footpaths to look after along the South West Coast path, our rangers, volunteers and contractors are kept busy. Many sites are remote with poor access and very wet, clay soils. In one year alone, 120 tonnes of surface stone was used to dress paths and car parks. All of this is vital to allow visitors and locals to walk these paths.
Each year, around 200 children get the chance to explore the area with us, making use of our purpose-built education hut. Groups have been taking part in an iron-age day, learning about the history of the area, and in ecology days, discovering about life cycles.

Volunteering with the Bideford Bay and Hartland Rangers
We would not be able to look after these special places without the help of our wonderful volunteers. We run regular drop-in volunteer days at Peppercombe, Brownsham and Dunsland - why not turn up and join the team for a day?
